Memory Month Day 21: Relate to Me

via wikipedia

Today is the last day of relating things to myself, and so I decided that it was going to be a great time to talk more about it as a method.

Relating concepts to yourself is very similar to the previous week’s theme, which was all about coming up with stories. Indeed, they both require you to get a bit creative when it comes to what you’re about to memorize. One of them does so by making you come up with a plot, while the other asks you to find concepts that you already know about, and connect them to the new info.

Both of these methods are absolutely amazing giving you an edge when trying to memorize things, but here’s the thing: you have to practice using them. Indeed, you can’t expect to come up with great connections or a plot that can be remembered easily without having had some training at it first.

But that sort of goes without saying, doesn’t it? Usually becoming better at something implies practicing it quite a bit first.
